Re: Schedule

3 members on a platoon, or three all in? Sounds like a typical RCMP Contract Provincial Policing General Duty 3 member Detachment. If so, hopefully the Commander does not use the, "I have whatever-years of service, I am a Cpl, and the Detachment Commander - I do NOT work nights or weekends!&qu...

Re: Adrenaline Dump AKA The Shakes

I work for the RCMP and we have certain "social media policies" which I make sure I don't go against. This doesn't mean I tell you that I am something like a babysitter who works in a place something like a city but also lets go with that. If your job title is security guard or bank telle...

Re: Adrenaline Dump AKA The Shakes

It is so important to be abel to keep your cool in this line of work. I'd like to open up some conversation on dealing with stressful situations and those natural reactions as they happen. Also, let's hear some stories and lessons learned about confrontation. What line of work are you in? Your prof...

I like the look, but DAMN, modernize those roof-lights. You guys must be the last Service in the province still using those antique rotaries! :)

Re: Encrypted scanners

Our Service has had encrypted radio comms for about 20 years. It's hard to believe there are still some out there operating "in the clear".

Re: Q regarding 400 series

OPP does not do municipal policing in large urban areas. Traffic on provincially-owned roads only. Not sure if it still works that way, but at one time if there was a serious criminal offence (e.g. murder) on such a highway, the Municipal service would step in and take over the investigation (e.g. 4...

Re: is a Detective Constable senior in rank to Constable

This is the part that's not correct: There is no stand alone "detective" rank, it would be D/Cst, D/Sgt, etc. There is a Detective rank (in many larger services, Toronto PS being one of them....but not all) that is lateral to Sergeant. Likewise, Detective Sergeant is the lateral to Staff S...

Re: is a Detective Constable senior in rank to Constable

alright that makes sense, so it's more a functional label of a particular role that an officer is holding at the time. I mistakingly assumed that it was step on a ladder in a sense. ie PC ---> DC ---> DET. If I am understanding you correctly it could be that, but PC to DC is a lateral move? Thanks ...

Re: Cops VS Fireman..the reality.

No, but having an explanation as to why you think they are overpaid is. Having an explanation for why I think firefighters are overpaid is related to my feelings about my career? I don't see how this follows. Sure. It means your miserable in your own current situation/salary that you feel the need ...
